How Healthy is your Mouth and Tongue ?

The Tongue in your mouth, like your body's heart pulse is principle with adjacent oral tissues for a comprehensive method in examination and diagnosis of the oral cavity. This is not just a clinical protocol in dentistry, but in many aspects for the practitioners of medicine. Clinically, each of the major anatomical aspects of the tongue ( body mass, color, shape, and coating ) in the diagnostic process is systematic for detection of local and complex disease disorders of the body. Yet, another advantage of tongue diagnosis is its value in self-diagnosis with greater patient involvement in the early detection and treatment of an oral condition or body systemic disease manifestations. You should have an Oral Health Assessment done by scheduling a visit to the dentist. Your tongue diagnosis say a mouthful about you. See below an inside of mouth a labeled picture diagram of a tongue and its papillae.

The tongue being that it provides invaluable information for all clinical aspects when examine is composed of skeletal muscle covered with a mucus membrane. It has several muscles originating from the skull bone which insert into the tongue. Looking at the tongue's surface, it has elevated folds of a top cellular layer called papillae. The tongue has types of papillae. The Foliate papillae is found at its back side surface, a mass of Filiform papillae interspersed with Fungiform  papillae covers its tip and dorsum, on the root of the tongue at the very back there is a set of V-Shaped Circumvallate papillae which has protective and preventive swallowing functions, The diagnosis puts the emphasis on these two types of papillae - the Filiform papillae forming the coating and the Fungiform papillae that form the tongue body surface. They become "red points or spots" when in a pathological condition. There is thus a complex physiological relationship between our body systems, organs and the tongue which is one of the principle concepts of Chinese medicine. Comparison to the paradigm of Traditional Medicine and its protocol with Chinese Medicine all of the internal organs connect with the tongue in ways other than via their channels. This system of channels originates from internal organ in the course of its pathway. certain specific parts of the tongue reflect the health of other parts of the body, or of certain internal organs. The pathways of channels, however are at best only a partial explanation in subjugation as a clinical tool for the required practice of Traditional Medicine.
